Stop by during Saturday Streetfair and say hi! For the past 17 years, Josh Goff and the 11 Hooks crew have painted an original mural in our community. The crew has grown and changed over the years, and some of the artists now work internationally. To create this project, the artists volunteer their time and creative vision; materials are sponsored by the CVAF and community donors. This year’s mural brings both new ideas and reflection, as we are looking ahead to developing new projects at future festivals.
